Lil Nas X’s MONTERO album arrived on Friday (September 17) and opinions on the project are flying across social media. One critique, in particular, came from one of the “Old Town Road” artist’s Hip Hop compatriots in Lizzo and — she’s given the effort her stamp of approval.
Lizzo praised the album in graphic fashion as only she could by providing some raunchy commentary while complimenting Lil Nas X for what he’s accomplished with his debut LP.
“[I’ve] never been a fan of lil nas but this new project he released has me literally pissing, shitting, and cumming,” she wrote to Twitter.
Lil Nas X clocked Lizzo’s tweet and clearly loved what she wrote. He replied, “LMFAOOOO I LOVE U.”

MONTERO boasts 15 tracks and features appearances from Jack Harlow, Megan Thee Stallion, Doja Cat, Miley Cyrus and Sir Elton John.
There were a couple more guests he tried to get on the album but to no avail. Speaking with The Breakfast Club, Lil Nas X (who used to run a Nicki Minaj fan account on Twitter) admitted he hit up Drake and Nicki Minaj, but neither came through with verses. Drake was busy recording Certified Lover Boy while Nicki’s team deaded the collaboration altogether.
“No reply from Nicki, Drake was still working [on Certified Lover Boy],” he said. “Drake replied ’cause you know Gee Roberson’s my manager. Drake and Gee are cool. And he was still working on Certified Lover Boy and whatnot and he was 100 percent focused on that.”
